emanuel? >> guest: not a good one. to this day rahm emanuel does not have good things to say about jarrett. emanuel was opposed to the president's this is other people's reporting as well -- the president going for broke on obamacare. he thought he should do incremental steps first, small steps, popular steps he could get republican backing for. valerie jarrett and michelle obama were the two people who said, listen, mr. president -- actually, valerie calls him barack. the only person in the white house, other than michelle, who does. you were elected to be not just president but to be a special president, a transformational president, a person who is going to change the direction and course of america, and you can't just do this piecemeal. you have toking take the whole thing. good for the healthcare bill, to go down in history as the first president to pass a national healthcare bill, and he listened to valerie and michelle, not to rahm emanuel, and this was the beginning of emanuel's erosion of power, because it was one of several examples to which the president listened to the ideology
of an endless campaign with chicago mayor and former obama chief of staff rahm emanuel. and romney supporter ohio senator rob portman. 33 senate seats, 435 house seats and one president seat. an election extravaganza with former mississippi governor haley barbour and cnn's dana bash. i'm candy crowley. this is "state of the union." >>> they are ships passing in the night and the day. this day mitt romney will be in iowa, ohio, pennsylvania, and virginia, while the president heads to new hampshire, south of florida, back up north to ohio, out west to colorado. monday romney goes to florida, virginia, ohio, and new hampshire. obama counters with wisconsin, ohio, and a closing rally in iowa. the biggest surprise in that final 48 hours is romney's last minute bid in pennsylvania. polls in the state favor president obama, but not by as much as they once did. the romney campaign calls it expanding the electoral map. the obama campaign calls it a fairy tale. well, in the parallel universe phase of the campaign. joining me is chicago mayor and former white house chief of staff rahm emanuel. let me s
the change into law in the first month. it wasn't clean and pretty. rahm emanuel is in the middle of it and it wasn't suitable for younger years either. but the whole stimulus debate is a case study in obama to the disillusionment of the left but proved that obama was just like every other politician. more interested in cutting deals and trading james desperate to compromise with republicans who were only interested in surrender. to the fever swamps on the right it revealed obama is a euro socialist radical who is a full - chicago style partisan and a wimp who is deferring to his leftist congressional overlords of the same time. he was pretty much what he said he was. a data oriented left of center technocrat that was above all a pragmatist comfortable with compromise, and willing to sacrifice the good in pursuit of the ideal it was the first evidence that after the campaigning of the change on the system outsider he would govern as a work the system insider but despite all of his talk, he understood they don't produce change. the stimulus is producing change. it's not producing p
either be in the oval office or we'd take a walk. >> president obama and his chief of staff rahm emanuel kept close tabs on their to-do list. >> then we made sure we had our -- he and i used this word interchangeably, our north stars. you know, it's easy in these jobs day to day to get thrown off course. what's your north star, what do you need to get done. >> did you expect there to be a honeymoon period? >> i don't remember walking the halls saying should we get a honeymoon? i don't really -- we got problems to solve. i don't have the luxury of looking at oil paintings and talking to them. >> even as the stimulus fight was at fever pitch, the auto industry was falling fatally ill. >> literally, they were talking about two weeks and bust. there was not two years. there was not, we have a problem here. we think we can keep it alive for two weeks. >> if general motors and chrysler had been liquidated, in all likelihood, other automobile companies would have collapsed. an entire supplier network. the consequences would have been felt in either community in the country. >> the car companies
three years. so as i think rahm emanuel, to pair a fwraz him, never let a good hurricane go to waste. >> sean, taking up that second point, do you think that the fact of this hurricane will resonate more strongly to help president obama in the election because it does suggest, you know, that you need government. >> sure. >> that it acts and protects communities and things like that. >> it helps with the whole way of thinking about the government and what it can do for people and fema, for example. republicans have not been in favor of making fema robust. the democrats have. natural disasters actually hurt two republican presidents very badly. both george h.w. bush with hurricane andrew and katrina, of course. so following up on rahm emanuel, he might have thought hurricanes generally play better for democrats in that they require that kind of federal aid. you cannot -- no state, no city can do this on this its own and that was what was poignant with governor christie and president obama. yeah, i think that's true. >> edmund, this was a case of leadership that is perhaps a little bit

home. we did not show you the respect you served your country admirably. >> rather rahm emanuel helps lay the wreath in front of chicago's vietnam veterans memorial while announcing a new city program aimed at helping today's returning veterans. with a chance to attend a city college, with credit for their service, and a special $1,000 scholarship. >> when you think about how our veterans now are coming home and. issues in which, whether it's health care, employment, housing, it was because of the mistakes we made in the past that we learned our lessons and we will never repeat those mistakes. >> i was a 12, 13 years old in the early 1970's and i saw that the way the veterans were treated, and i see how veterans are properly treated now and i felt it was important to come over here and just pay our respects as well and be able to stand and pay tribute to the men and women who gave so much back then for our country. >> i think it's important that we commemorate the 50th 50th anniversary like we did for world
in the last three months of 2008. that's the worst contraction in close to three decades. >> rahm emanuel would be the president's chief of staff. >> slightly like rolling thunder because you could have taken the economics, you could taken the auto, you could have taken the financial, you could have taken afghanistan, you could have taken iraq. usually, there's an "a," a "b." what happens when all five are as? >> it was basically awful. >> in the months leading up to inauguration, economic adviser austan goolsbee watched in horror as the stock market dropped more than 500 points in a day. >> there was a bottle of bourbon sitting there in the campaign. it had been there for a year and a half and i said, man, if there ever was a day to have a drink of this emergency bourbon, it's today. >> and then it got worse. >> the next day dropped another 500 points. and then late in the campaign, it happens again and somebody says, where's the bourbon? i said, the bottle's empty. >> the emergency bourbon was gone, and the economy was in dire shape. one month before his inauguration barack obama called
in 2009, 2010 pushed a cap and trade bill and almost got it passed. if you talk to nancy pelosi and rahm emanuel, they almost lost their seats. and with reporters, unless there's a two-party debate, they don't cover it. >> this is a big problem and is this is where barack obama has been whacked and he has been. they walked away from elements of it from the administration itself burke this is the big question that needs to be raised. not that this should be connected to climate change because it cannot be but the unpredictability, the veracity, everything. never mind the rising sea levels. try taking the sub kwai in new york city today. if you want to address this, it's billions, hundreds of billions of dollars to fortify coastal areas. >> i think you made the salient point. >> this is one of those issues where the press has to say, what's the science, it doesn't matter if one party's saying they don't believe in it. they're wrong. the science is compelling. >> and the media have become intimidated i think. intimidated by a lot of the political push back and the fact that there's silence
and we >> this is what rahm emanuel said, they need a clinton moment. but rush limbaugh said sarcastically about the party becoming a big tent >> clarence thomas, herman cain, none of it counts. don't tell me the republican party doesn't have outreach. we do. but what are we supposed to do now? are we supposed to -- in order to get the hispanic or latino vote, does that mean open the borders/ illegals? is that -- i want you to think about that. if we're not getting the female vote, do we become pro choice? do we start passing out birth control pills? is that what we have to do?well better than he did. how do you retort to that as a -- what i think is a more centrist republican, that you are? >> i find it prehistoric, chris. i think economic freedom and, you know, and giving people who immian get them productive tax-paying citizen rather than this notion of self-deportation and throwing up fences is the wrong way. i don't think that was the original annism. and i think the philosophy of republicans should be -- i mean, it's supposed toe government out of your liveswhy notion

're assuming that these people don't want to create a recession. remember rahm emanuel's doctrine? never let a serious crisis go to waste. the thing that's wrong with obama's second term is they don't have a crisis. and sometimes i think they want to make one. lints to what people like patty murray and christina romer are saying. what barack obama said at that press conference when he said if there was any scenario in which we could fall off a fiscal cliff. he said sure, we could imagine that scenario, if congress doesn't agree. agree with whom? with him. he's saying it's my way off the cliff. and that is a way to go off the fiscal cliff, blame the republicans, stampede them into god knows what. cap and trade, card check. another stimulus plan. that ain't no bull market, larry. >> i think all those fears are actually now slowly being discounted in the stock market. and i agree with you. >> more to come. >> president obama answered that question all wrong because he kind of left the door open that maybe he'd let the cliff go through. anyway, don luskin, thank you very much. >> thank you, larr
